It’s the punch you don’t see coming that drops you. Any fighter can tell you that. And Mickey Watts isn’t just any fighter; he’s one of the best in mixed martial arts, a top contender who seems to have it all: looks, brains and rich girlfriend who’s crazy about him. The fact his family is mobbed-up to its Irish-Italian eyebrows has never been a problem…until Mick throws one punch too many and finds that some debts can only be paid in blood.
“Rich language,memorable characters, and sharp dialogue are clearly Watson’s stock in trade. Cage Life takes you on a trip through the world of mixed martial arts and then makes a detour, dropping you smack dab in the middle of the New York City mob. You’re never quite sure what’s coming next, a choke hold or a bullet to the back of the neck.” — John Fortunato, Tony Hillerman prize-winning author of Dark Reservations
“Walk the mean streets of New York, brushing shoulders with the mob, the molls, and a tough MMA fighter in a debut crime novel, CAGE LIFE by Miles Watson. A former law enforcement officer, Watson knows his characters and tells a helluva story.” — Patrick W. Picciarelli, author of Undercover Cop and Mala Femina
